Mind Your Precious Self
Inspirations for life
With the Covid-19 pandemic I wanted to offer something to those who were also feeling unanchored, sad and anxious. I started to post daily on Instagram and Facebook on a myriad of topics based around building up our immune system and resetting our lives to the new ‘normal’. I coalesced all my previous seemingly disparate training and life experience to offer advice that was physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. At the time I had no idea what would happen next but it felt important to do. My heart was so lifted by the huge response in social media comments and by email. This tiny seed grew quickly into a fledgling Oak. Here below are the Free Talks and Workshops that have sprung from these small beginnings. I hope you like them and consider joining me some day.
I feel that small do-able steps are important. Advice that is easy to try and translate into new behaviours and habits that will become part of your epic life.
Often clients share that they felt so alone with their issue thinking that they are the only ones experiencing these symptoms now they are in good company.
I am a big advocate of harnessing our mind, body and soul together as each of these vital parts work synergistically so we can be the best we can be.
Our human system is now often overloaded by certain foods such as sugar, alcohol and trans fats. I offer simple tips to cut down with tasty alternatives.
Where possible I use my academic skillset to enhance the tried and tested tips I offer most of which have been trialed personally by me over the years.
All my Talks and Workshops come from the premise that if the advice is simple and makes sense then it is easy to action and weave into a daily habit.
A Taste of the Series
Day 1: Stillness
Day 2: Move
Day 5: Letting Go
Day 7: Sugar
I was a sugar fiend back in the day – 3 heaped spoonfuls in my tea, a gooey caca mílis and of course alcohol is liquid sugar too. There are plenty of healthy alternatives and the effect on our body and mind of a sugar detox is huge – clear, calm and grounded. One step at a time to release the grip of this hidden addiction is what it takes.
Day 17: Decluttering
I am a typical Capricorn, practical, neat and organised but I do love beautiful old treasures which can take over the house. How could I possibly let go that card from a dear friend or ornament gifted with love from my niece? You know how it is, over the years your living space grows full of stuff with no room to move. My beloved books were the hardest, giving away a precious way that I treasured, they brought me so much joy over the years.
Day 21: Feeding my Celtic soul
This is a photo of the place in our home where I keep all my precious sacred objects. It is beside the space where I do my yoga and mediation called ‘Searmanas’ Gaelic for ‘Morning Ritual’. This sets me up for the day ahead. I have a regular 15 minute version and a quickie 5 minute one too. Each item has significance and meaning for me.
